Subject: Great to hear this for real
Dark Star from this night is THE QUINTESSENTIAL 60's DS, hands down. All through the song, the band shows such presence, every member has his finger on the pulse of where he fits in, where the music has been, where it is, and where it's going. At about the 11:00 minute mark, the psychelia truly begins with Jerry's sequence of ta-da-DAs, and peaks at about 14:20 - 14:40 with bizarre vocalizations, a shrieking sound, and something like Road Runner on a trampoline. From there, the band works its way back to firmer ground and puts together the loudest, most rocking part of the jam, then mellows out a bit before beginning the closing section. I love how Jerry's guitar goes from fuzzy to ear-piercing just like that.

As to the sound, the CD version of Live Dead is better than the vinyl, but this is better still. You don't hear as much washboard, but you hear very clearly and crisply Bob's creative rhythm guitar, and Tom's keys are clearly audible which they are not always on the record.

As much as I've enjoyed that seminal album over the years, this version strips away the filters like a heavy dose of Owsley. Hear it the way it actually sounded.

Garcia had no idea how appropriate those words would be years later. Of all 60s Dead shows, this is the one I would use to introduce new listeners. Fitting that much of this first night of a run at the Fillmore went on the Live/Dead album.

To the GD family: thank you, thank you, thank you for allowing this show to be streamed on the Archive again. I've been critical about some of your choices in the past, but never let it be said that I was ungrateful when somebody did the right thing. I listened to this while building guitar effects pedals for a very Alembic-like company, and had such a wonderful time that I can honestly say today was one of the high points in all my 45 years so far. I love you. Thanks.
